. this is from a week ago. host: that's from the breitbart website. this is from "the hill" newspaper, healthcare and obama making gains. president obama maintains a 20-point advantage over mitt romney on medicare and his signature healthcare law is more popular than it has been in years, according to a new survey. september's kaiser health tracking poll had mostly good news for obama, but this was tempered by one finding, that two in three seniors believe the healthcare law directly cuts medicare benefits. a frequent attack line from romney, the cuts claim points to the law's $716 billion in reductions to medicare provider payments. overall, the poll found that 45% of u.s. adults have a favorable view of the healthcare law, while 40% have an unfavorable view. and here's the front page of the "boston globe" this morning, this owe lit wary is in a lot of papers, but john silver, boston university leader, dies. his temp he is oust quarter century as president of boston university brought the school to new levels of academic excellence and financial stability while creating an atmosphere of conflict

provisions. host: is health-care availability widespread enough in this country, are we coming to a system where you have to go to a major metropolitan area to get cutting edge care or whatever? guest: it is not widely available in every way it should be. we have massive disparities in rural areas. doctors go to medical school in these funds cities -- fun cities. do they want to go work in a rural area where they have to deal with higher not practice premiums, bigger overhead costs, practicing out of their area and a broader range of services? there are increasing disincentives for good young doctors to go to rural areas and underserved populations. and now with the way reimbursement is going and with our health care system is, quite frankly, bankert, those disparities are getting worse. -- bankrupt, those disparities are getting worse. i have seen doctors go to a subscription service. people will pay me $1,000 or $2,000 a year and i will go to their house and they will have my number doctors are doing it and it is unfortunately creating a class segregation. host: nancy, your honor with dr
? >> well, here is the thing. there are so many things wrong with this current health-care tax law. in addition to adding $1 trillion in spending, we are taking $700 million out of medicare. that is why seniors are so concerned that they will have access to doctors. there are some that said they will not take any more medicare patients. having these decisions made by medicare doctors and patients, not bureaucracies. i would make it a reversible tax credit, where people get coverage for major medical procedures, and by having its portable, it means that if somebody moves from job to job, they do not have to worry about a pre-existing condition that they or somebody in their family may have , so the me, that is a positive approach. it puts patients and hospitals and doctors in charge rather than washington. that would be a paradigm shift. the solution is not moving the $700 million from medicare, which is something we have to make solvent. it is in precarious shape. we will be right back, after this. we continue with our discussions. >> governor kaine, whether you think same-sex coup
